85 Wing Seat issue

Post by apalachmac » Sun Jul 01, 2012 7:26 pm

I am not happy with the seat configuration on my 85 1200. I get leg cramps with my legs at a 90degree angle.
Moved the seat to the rear as much as allowed, did not help....Most comfortable when back two or more inches, I carry no extra riders
Anyone know of a good seat flat across the whole seat

I had the same problem with my 1100. After a 3-4 hours of riding, my knees would be sore. The way I fixed it was to buy a GL1500. :)

You could also look at putting a set of highway pegs on, to let your legs have a stretch once in a while.
